Full text not available from this repository.


Like other major social institutions, the Church in Wales is regulated by a complicated body of rules that are the product of continuous historical development, theological reflection and practical action. In this book, Norman Doe provides the first comprehensive statement of the modern law of the Church in Wales and the law of the State applicable to the church. The Law of the Church in Wales sets out the legal structures of the Church in Wales, and how these operate within the context of both the law of the State and the laws of other churches in the worldwide Anglican Communion. It describes how the church organises its internal government, the rights and duties of its clergy and lay people, its public worship, its rites (such as baptism and marriage), its relations with other Christian churches, and its property and finances. The Law of the Church in Wales is an accessible and practical guide to the legal rules, rights and duties which have an impact on so many aspects of the church's life and role in society. It will be an essential text for clergy and lay officers of the Church in Wales, and for anyone interested in ecclesiastical law in Wales.
